Another "Guns and Butter" (For the Greedy) Budget

Well, let's get this all straight: Junior Caligula's taste for blood is proposed to cost upwards of $623 billion (with the possibility that more will be extorted from the treasury later). If nothing else, the über-rich will make out like bandits, what with Bu$hCo's first term tax cuts set in concrete. It's all smiles for CEOs, I suppose. However, if you're poor, disabled, depending on Medicare or Medicaid etc., expect to get hosed.

Of course, if there were an actual opposition party in the US, this budget would not be a done deal. Oh wait - we have the Democrats. They've done a heck of a job in opposing the escalation of the Iraq War debacle. Surely they'll equal their successes on the budget front as well.
